2 slices of zucchini bread on plateWe have a bountiful zucchini crop in our garden year. This is a great way to use zucchini and the bread freezes well for later in the year. My husband has taken to calling this "magic" bread with the kids since it's a great way to sneak in some vegetables too.

You can also use this recipe to make muffins, just check them for doneness a bit earlier.

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2-3 zucchini (2 cups grated)

This won me first prize at a county fair some years ago. It's an easy way to get a green veggie into youngsters. Zucchini alone doesn't really appeal to me, but with this recipe if you don't tell, they won't know!

This is a great recipe that gives you a lot of the food groups in one recipe. This zucchini bread is great for breakfast, snack, or dessert, and a lunch box favorite.


Large amounts can be baked and frozen for later, here's how!

We had an abundance of zucchini from our farm fresh home delivery, so one option to use the zucchini was making freshly baked zucchini bread.

Take advantage of low prices on zucchini and blueberries. I used frozen zucchini from last year's garden and frozen blueberries from Dollar Tree.


I used my toaster oven and it was done in 45 minutes.

Lighten up the traditional recipe by using applesauce. I reduced the sugar and omitted the nuts. The recipe is written as I received it. I have so much zucchini from my garden that I took advantage of this way to use it. This bread freezes well.

Zucchini is exploding in gardens and supermarkets. Take advantage of this and make this delicious bread. I reduced the sugar by half and substituted Splenda, and left out the nuts due to allergies in the family.

If my recipe for zucchini bread calls for 3 cups of zucchini how much frozen zucchini should I use?

3 cups? Actually depends upon how the zucchini is supposed to be prepared and then measured in the recipe. You can cut or chop the frozen zucchini (thawed?) to approximate the amount stated in the recipe.
